purple wire, goes to ECM (oxygen sensor input) “D7”
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS ITEM:
this is a self grounding sensor.
The original factory oxygen sensor is a narrow band sensor.
Some owners prefer GM (AC Delco) versions.
The Denso brand is a popular upgraded O2 sensor to install (especially with using race gas).
A heated oxygen sensor is another type.
The measuring method for the O2 sensor is in MV (MilliVolts), and on a scanmaster or other reading tool, runs 0mv to 1000mv.
The AFR (Air Fuel Ratio) can run from 12:1 to 18:1, with the stochiometric A/F point of 14.7 being the dividing line. Corrections are made from there by the computer.
The OEM sensor sends a signal to the ECM, telling it if the exhaust gas is lean or rich. The ECM then makes the necessary corrections from there, to the part throttle fueling. This adjustment does NOT affect the WOT fueling.
